Mabel was very loved and cherished by all of her family and her many friends. Throughout her life she was all about giving. Mabel was a prayer warrior and was diligent about praying for anyone she knew was in need of prayer. She was an avid gardener and enjoyed working in the yard on her scoot-n-do. She reluctantly gave up gardening at 89. Mabel was a wonderful cook but was always glad to sit down to a meal someone one else had prepared, she said, “Things just taste better when someone else cooks them”.
Very special thanks go to Sharon McEachern, Kay Montgomery, Alicia Montgomery and Mary Thomas for their loving care.
Honorary pallbearers are James McFarland, Archie Allen, Allen McEachern and David Stolarski.
Memorials in her memory may be made to St Jude’s or First Methodist Church, 590 NE McAlister Road Burleson, Texas 76028 where the was an active member for many years.
